I first read this when I was a teenager in the 1970s and loved it. When I found it in my book collection I decided I must read it again.

Mostly stupid... this would have been more fun when I was 10 years old watching the reruns.

I did chuckle when Max used the binoculars provided in the bag of gadgets from Control's R&D. He couldn't see anything, but he did have two black circles around his eyes when he lowered the binoculars.

I also liked the "human robot" in the last couple chapters -- this was better than the main plot.
